Passion



Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

I just picked up the new Casting Crowns CD, the song on the radio is East to West. I loved it the first time I heard it.



Written by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms


Here I am, Lord, and I'm drowning in your sea of forgetfulness
The chains of yesterday surround me
I yearn for peace and rest
I don't want to end up where You found me
And it echoes in my mind, keeps me awake tonight
I know You've cast my sin as far as the east is from the west
And I stand before You now as though I've never sinned
But today I feel like I'm just one mistake away from You leaving me this way
Jesus, can You show me just how far the east is from the west'
Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been come rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'Cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
I start the day, the war begins, endless reminding of my sin
Time and time again Your truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in
Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away from You leaving me this way
I know You've washed me white, turned my darkness into light
I need Your peace to get me through, to get me through this night
I can't live by what I feel, but by the truth Your word reveals
I'm not holding on to You, but You're holding on to me
You're holding on to me
Jesus, You know just how far the east is from the west
I don't have to see the man I've been come rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'Cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
One scarred hand to the other
From one scarred hand to the other

Nice that the anonymous Jerk has nothing better to do! I will pray for that jerk! Release the DEVIL from that evil person Lord, and please forgive them for their evil ways! Love ya Margie!

i would reccomend that you delete anonymous however, that would mean he/she was not being prayed for regarding his/her giant jerkitude. so it's very generous of you to leave him/her there so we can all pay attention to how silly they are. p.s. we love you margie.

The reason I left this on here is kind of silly. First to remind me that people who are mean are usually cowards. Second, I do need to lose weight, sometimes motivation is needed. Third, everyone needs prayer. Sometimes all we can do is pray for jerks.

How fat am I? Let's just say, my butt is as big as my heart, and that's pretty big, so go eat a worm :)
